Aah really? I'd have thought any Ivy League school would be as well known. Yeah the American schools have amazing aid packages, and it's severely lacking at Oxford, at both undergrad and graduate levels. Someone in my college had to leave their studies in-between to raise money for tuition fees, his parents had mortgaged their house and everything I was lucky in that I got aid from Oxford being a home student, if not I would have gone to Imperial

I can imagine. If you feel it's best, go for it. A year out can really help identify what you want for the future, I wish I had done that retrospectively. Sleep sounds great haha

Warning: whining ahead

:cry: :cry: :cry: Got rejected by Nestle, I have to do some of my GSK interview again for the third time because there's a problem with my audio again(!) and I have an assessment center tomorrow that I'm very scared for. So not great. If I don't get this I'm becoming a housewife




It is well known but Oxbridge has better reputation as many very famous people went there, especially politicians.

That's terrible. I hope they were able to find finance and complete their degree. Aid for internationals at British universities in general is non-existent.

I've actually already taken a year out (I did my A levels this May/June and 2 resits in October) but I wasn't able to get any rest because i was studying and stuff. This would be my second one.

Don't worry you can definitely do this, don't be nervous. Also, don't give up If they reject you and keep looking.

So how did the assessment centre thing go?

I think the trend is those who are entrepreneurial by nature and more self-starting tend to go to the US to study- there are so many more opportunities to start businesses etc. Those who are more concerned with research or need the Oxbridge name to further their careers go there. Hence politicians.

I think they're still on a year out British universities use international students as cash cows, especially as they are one of the biggest sources of funding for some universities. Funding here is bad- the difference between here and the US is the alumni community in the US is particularly powerful, and the big universities get large donations from rich alum which beat Oxbridge/UK universities by miles. It will only get worse as we lose EU funding as well

Take as much time as you need, especially as we'll all spend the rest of our lives working after graduating, so there's no rush! I mean I've spent the last 6 months basically unemployed anyway :laugh:

I GOT THE JOB!! :shock::shock: It starts in September though, so I need to find a different job in the interim

I agree but I think that overall both Oxbridge and ivy league etc are at par. Both have good name recognition and job prospects. I found a good article on this.

http://www.oxbridgeapplications.com/...he-difference/

That's unfortunate. They do use them as cash cows this is true. I agree that the alumni donors are rich but i think that another factor here is that the American government spends more on these universites whereas the British government is comparatively broke. There is a huge difference between the endowment figures of top American universities and Oxbridge.

Hmm I think you're probably right.



:congrats: Congratulations didi, I am happy

:bigsmile: for you. I think you were worried for no reason.

Also, good luck with getting a job in the interim

"Living as a Hindu in the 21st century- A talk by Shaunaka Rishi Das"

https://youtu.be/-Z-3fz4LbDw

"The role of ancient Hindu texts"

https://youtu.be/CiDwI-OBcz8

A little about him here-
http://www.thehindu.com/features/fri...cle6834396.ece

I really liked these 2 but there are many other excellent videos on YouTube by him.

http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list...1-WnaN67pFcca8

They are quite long so I increased playback speed by 1.5x. There should be a option for this on the right hand side of the video.
